The third round of the LG FIS World Cup Big Air hits Stockholm’s Olympic Stadium this weekend. The last 2 rounds have seen an epic battle between Austrian legend Stefan Gimpl and up and coming Swiss ripper Gian-Luca Cavigelli, with Stefan clinching first in both rounds.
In the past the Fins have made their presence felt at the Swedish Leg of the tour and this years promises to be no different with a heavy hitting squad attending. Finish rising stars Petja Piiroinen, Nuutti Niemelae and Roope Tonteri as well as experienced Ville Uotila and Jaakko Ruha will be riding against the likes of Marko Grilc, Matevz Petek, Chris Soerman and Gjermund Braaten.
So far this year we’ve seen double corked back 10s, front and back 12s, smooth Rodeo 7s and some cab 9s so levels of hucking and style are expected to be high. Bring it on.
